Vegan Chocolate Hummus

Vegan Chocolate Hummus

Earlier today I experimented with this controversial love-it-or-hate-it vegan chocolate hummus recipe…and I loved it.

This creamy chocolate hummus can be used in many ways – spreads for your bread, dips for your fruits, crackers, and chips.

Chocolate Hummus

If you want a creamy vegan chocolate hummus, simply remove the outer skin of the chickpeas before throwing them in the food processor (see instructions below).

Let’s do this. Check out the video + printable recipe below.


NOTE: Freezing the hummus for 4-5 hours eliminates the ‘chickpea-y’ flavor.

Delicious vegan chocolate hummus recipe



  1. Soak 1 cup of chickpeas overnight (or at least 8 hours). 
  2. Cook the chickpeas for 20 minutes (8 minutes in a pressure cooker). 
  3. Optional Step (for creamier hummus): Transfer the cooked chickpeas to a large bowl and add 1 cup of cold water. Rub them together using your hands (or use a kitchen towel) so that the outer skin starts to peel off. Wash and discard the skins. 
  4. Transfer the chickpeas + all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Freezing the hummus for 4-5 hours helps suppress the chickpea flavor.

  1. My family loved this. Removing the skin was tricky so we ended up removing only half them lol. Thanks for sharing. <3
